Yum..I made toogies skillet cake and used my 1-minute fudge frosting (stired my pecans in)...oh my! DH smacked his lips. I don't understand why it's called ''brownie'' cuz it is so lite it can floatQ My old skillet is eons old (you can tell from the 'crust' on it) and is rarely used..my MIL is beaming down from above that her old skillet and frosting recipe is so enjoyed. Thx toogie, for making me drag it out.

It looks so good! My youngest daughter (age 26) has scoliosis that has progressed now to the point that she is in constant pain. The doctors have finally made a referral to a scoliosis center for evaluation for surgery. Once she gets "all fixed up" the first thing she wants to do is make this brownie. She is unable to lift up the pan right now.

I really see no reason it can't be cooked in a cake pan. If the iron skillet gets hotter, just monitor the time with a toothpick or spaghetti in the center for doneness. I pray your daughter gets "all fixed up" asap. Back pain of any kind is debilitating. Hugs for her.

I wasn't finished. I started comment below and on my phone. The pad is so small I touched the submit by accident.
As I was saying, I'm glad you tried out the recipe and liked it. Your icing looks so pretty. I didn't mix my pecans, in the one I posted, because Nora can pick them off better. I don't know why she doesn't want them in the icing. She eats pecans and peanuts by their self all the time.
Now you have a reason to use that skillet MIL left you!-lol

Hmmm...I'm trying to "downsize" my cooking in my senior yrs, but the cake brought me out of that 'retirement'...yours looked soooo good. Yes, I will make this again--so quick and easy!

Mmmm, I had never heard of baking a cake in an iron skillet, but I like this idea.

I believe the pineapple upsidedown cake is often done in iron skillet, but I don't care for that one.
